Ortho Testimonial: Angi Baggett
Elite Care Dental offers three types of orthodontic treatment: traditional braces, Six Month Smiles®, and Invisalign®. Your dentist can help you determine which option will best work for your oral health needs and cosmetic goals. This orthodontics testimonial provided by our patient, Angi Baggett, highlights her positive experience, which she attributes to our friendly staff, use of sedation, and exceptional results.
Is Six Month Smiles Treatment Right for Me?
Six Month Smiles was specially created for a specific type of orthodontia patient. It provides targeted treatment for cosmetic misalignments, focusing on the front teeth that are visible when you smile. Six Month Smiles is not for patients who have a functional bite problem or require very complex corrections. However, this short-term method is very effective for many cosmetic flaws, including:
- Open bite
- Crowded teeth with overlapping
- Gaps between teeth
- Asymmetries, such as a reverse smile line or canted (off-center) front teeth
Benefits of Six Month Smiles
With an average treatment time of six months, there is no other orthodontic method that provides faster results. In addition, Six Month Smiles offers discreet treatment, with clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. This method is not nearly as noticeable as traditional metal braces, and Six Month Smiles braces, which use low-force movement, are generally more comfortable than traditional orthodontia.
Our Patient Results
Planning Your Treatment
In your initial cosmetic dentistry consultation, your Elite Dental Care dentist will evaluate your bite and smile to determine your candidacy for Six Month Smiles. During this consultation, your dentist will be able to provide you with an estimated treatment timeline.
What Is the Typical Treatment Timeline?
Treatment may be completed in as little as four months and will require no longer than nine months. In some cases, another orthodontic method such as Invisalign® may be recommended to treat complex malocclusion.
The Six Month Smiles Process
To begin Six Month Smiles treatment, we create a precise mold of your teeth that will be used to fabricate your custom brackets in a specialized lab. At the next appointment, your braces are bonded to your teeth and the wires placed to exact specifications to ensure optimal results.
The wires will be tightened every four to five weeks to ensure continued alignment until your goal is achieved. As with any orthodontia, some soreness is to be expected after the wires are tightened, but discomfort is generally manageable with over-the-counter medication.
Six Month Smiles® provides targeted treatment for cosmetic misalignments, focusing on the front teeth that are visible when you smile.
You will begin to see results very quickly as your teeth move steadily into symmetrical alignment. When it is time to remove the braces, your mirror will reveal exciting results: a new, more attractive smile with straight, evenly spaced teeth.
